Golf tournament at original Sandy Lane course

Competitive golf returns to the original Sandy Lane course this month with the staging of the Old 9 Scramble by the Barbados Golf Association.

Scheduled for July 27, the tournament will take the format of a two-ball scramble which will add a fun element and allow for the pairing of accomplished players and others with higher handicaps.

Entries for the tournament close on July 25.

In recent times, most tournaments at Sandy Lane have been hosted on the modern and upscale Country Club course.

The Old-9 Scramble follows the recent 2013 BGA Trophy which was played at the Barbados Golf Club, at Durants, and won by Bruce Hackett and David Wright.

They won the two-ball-better-ball competition with a score of 56 and were followed by Shane Johnson and Alex Sandeman with 59.

Third were female players Harriet Linton and Simone Ward (score of 60), who edged Scott Stollmeyer and Marcus Clarke on the count-back system.

Among the individual awards, Bill Weir took the prize for closest to the pin while Simone Ward registered the longest drive among the females and Chris DeCaires among the men.
